A friend of mine enjoys personal technology to an unusual degree. He decided for some reason that using a projector to display movies on the wall inside his house just wasn’t immersive enough, and built an outdoor entertainment center.
He uses a 4,500 lumen projector to drive it, so it gets plenty bright enough once the sun goes down.
The patio is equipped with surround sound, natch.
I asked him whether he’d had any problems with his neighbors complaining, and he said, “No, it seems they’ve gotten used to it. Sometimes they’ll go sit on their roofs and have a beer when we watch movies.”
Ah, living without a home owner’s association.
If anybody wants more specifications or any other info about the setup, send me an email and I’ll forward it.
